Robert Schumann: The Man, the Mind, the Music
St John's Smith Square, London
Why does music have such powerful effects upon us, our moods and well-being? How can music help to heal trauma, illness and brain injury? Professor Nigel Osborne, composer and pioneer in music therapy, and Stephen Johnson, writer and BBC Radio 3 presenter, introduced lectures by neuroscientists and psychiatrists and led discussions, illustrated by concerts featuring the music of Robert Schumann (1810-1856) and composers who influenced or were influenced by him.
